Hi Alicia, Yes the phone will come activated with a new number but as long as your old account with another carrier is still active then you can log into your self serve account once set up and port in your old number. This will automatically cancel your old account with whichever carrier your presently with and they will send you a final bill of what you owe them.

Yes. As long as you keep your account with Bell active, then transfer the number, then cancel with Bell.
